Hello! I graduated in 2014 in Bucharest, Romania. After graduation I found a big attraction for Soft Tissue Surgery and since 2015, I started to study in depth Reconstructive surgery and Wound Management, this being my main area of interest. I have been to many veterinary surgical events in Europe. I also wrote articles and I was involved in podcasts presenting different aspects about wound management. Also, I am an OCQ(V), I acquired the degree last year. I have been working in the UK since June 2018 and I joined Vets4Pets Lancaster in December 2021 as a Lead Vet.

Hi everyone! I’m Valeria and I graduated from the University of Turin, in Italy, in 2020. I joined the Vets4Pets family in September 2021 as a veterinary surgeon and I am super enthusiastic about being able to improve animals’ welfare. Being a vet has always been my dream and on top of enjoying every aspect of medicine, I also love how sweet and funny pets can be.
In my spare time you can find me playing with and cuddling my ginger cat, Diego. I also love travelling (I know what you are thinking, who doesn’t?), going to the movies and spending time with family and friends.

Hello! I’m Becky, one of the Student Veterinary Nurses. I have been with the practice since February 2021 as an Animal Nursing Assistant, and recently started studying at Myerscough College. At home, I have 5 tarantulas, 2 guinea pigs; Tigger and Piglet, a Poochon called Knoxx, and an asthmatic Roborovski Dwarf Hamster named Hedwig. I love to spend my spare time with my animals and family, who refer to my house as ‘The Zoo’. My favourite thing about being a Student Veterinary Nurse is seeing all the animals who come to see us; the big, small, weird, and wonderful, and of course all the puppy and kitten cuddles!

Hello, I’m Jo the Finance Coordinator. I have been here at Lancaster Vets4Pets since January 2022, but I have been with the Vets4Pets family for 4 years. Prior to joining Vets4Pets I worked as a Manager for Pets at Home for 15 years, but I started my Veterinary journey straight from school and became a Veterinary Nurse before moving into a role as a Boarding Kennels manager.


I have a dog and 2 cats of my own, who are as much a part of the family as my twin girls (if not spoiled a little more than them).


As you can see from my history, I am very passionate about animals and ensuring their best care possible. I love meeting you and your pets and I look forward to continuing to meet more faces in the future.


We also have various 0% interest finance options available to help spread the cost of treatments for your pets, so please feel free to pop in or phone me for a chat.


I look forward to seeing you in practice.

Practice Administrator

Read Meg bio

I have worked for Vets4Pets for around ten years now, originally recruited to open the Lytham practice. Since then I have worked in various practices both in England and Scotland front of house. The practice with the most diverse range of patients was Drumchapel in Glasgow where we tended to a huge snowy owl for a beak trim, an Iguana for removal of an abscess and George the pig who would come in store and eat whatever he could from the shelves.

This practice in Lancaster is by far the largest and busiest of all practices I have worked in, and I am looking forward to my role of Practice Administrator and getting to know everyone and the surrounding area of Lancaster.

Welcome to our world here at Lancaster Vets4Pets, my name is James and I’ve been setting up and running Veterinary Practices now for almost 14 years. I’m incredibly proud of what my people and practices have achieved in the name of animal welfare over the years, and I continue to be energised by the sheer gratitude and words of praise received from all our amazing clients! We are all better with pets and I make it my mission to do everything I can to create teams who believe that putting pets first is the right thing to do.
Having experienced working on the front line as a receptionist for many years as well as a veterinary nurse and ultimately Practice Manager and owner, I can’t begin to tell you how I feel about what we do. Seeing your comments coming through on reviews about how we’ve helped return your pet to full health (with your challenging work too, of course) fills me with pride and whilst we can’t always cure our communities’ pets – we will continue to work tirelessly to help those that we can. Having been the proud owner of pets for most of my life – I honestly get it! Long may we continue to do right by your pets and right by you because without you and your pets, we are nothing. I love serving the community of Lancaster and surrounding areas and whilst I may only have been here since June 2021, I hope to be here working with you, serving you and delighting you for many years to come.

Hi! My name is Sara, I joined the Vets4Pets team at Lancaster in November 2022 as a Client Care Co-ordinator. For as long as I can remember I have been obsessed with animals, I have always had a pet by my side. After finishing school I knew I wanted to do something with animals, I went on to complete my level 3 Animal Management at college. At home I have my baby Socks, he is an American Bulldog, he is a gentle giant and loves nothing more than a cuddle in our bed! His best trick is roll over and his favourite place is the river. I also have two cats Salt and Pepper, they are very cheeky brothers and after a long day climbing their cat tree and playing, they also cuddle up. My love and passion for animals has brought me to work here at the practice, I look forward to caring for your pets and you when you visit us!

Vets4Pets Lancaster is committed to bringing you affordable, high quality care via a modern, well equipped practice, including a lab, pharmacy, digital x-ray and ultrasound. Plus, on site car parking too!

The friendly team can't wait to meet all of their new clients!
